NCT list of checks
During a pre-NCT check, we inspect the brake pads, discs, and fluid levels to ensure they meet the necessary requirements. Any signs of wear or damage are promptly addressed to ensure your vehicle's braking efficiency.
Our mechanics thoroughly inspect all exterior lights, including headlights, taillights, indicators, and fog lights. Any faulty bulbs or wiring issues are promptly resolved to ensure compliance with NCT regulations.
Suspension and Steering
We inspect components such as shocks, struts, and steering linkages for signs of wear or damage. By addressing these issues, we ensure your vehicle's stability and manoeuvrability meet the required standards.
Tyres and Wheels
Our mechanics inspect tyre tread depth, condition, and pressure to ensure they comply with the NCT requirements. Wheel alignment and balancing are also checked to guarantee optimal handling and fuel efficiency.
